Benchmarking pre-production and production OpenStack clouds is not a trivial task. While it’s important to find your cloud’s limits, you don’t want to actually damage your cloud.
Rally is a benchmarking tool that tells you how OpenStack performs, especially under load at scale. You can use it to validate, performance test, and benchmark your OpenStack deployment using various pluggable Rally benchmark scenarios.In this fourth installment of a series, we take a look at Rally as the basis for a performance dashboard, showing you how to easily create graphical test results, including pie charts, performance charts, and histograms so you can create reports that are easy to understand, with information that viewers can quickly digest.
